DEXIA-Tower, Brussels U/C

The Dexia Tower will be 144m high and will have 37 floors. They are already at 26 floor i think. The building is located at the North district in Brussels.
It will be, after Tour du Midi, the tallest building in Brussels.





These beautiful pictures are taken by "Giergel"

It's a nice tower for a city like Brussels. In comparison with the other buildings in Brussels, this one is already a step forward!

I'm not sure about this one yet, it isn't a masterpiece, but maybe it blends in well with the other buildings...

It hasn't got a paintjob.... The entire building is covered with glass, incuding the roof.
And yeah the building is quite massive: above ground: 88.086 sqm ; under ground: 23.717 sqm

Here's a pic of how it wil look like. The building to the right is 100m high.
The building to the left is U/C and will also be 100m...

It doesn't like a 140 meter tower because it's waaaay too fat.

Not so original? It looks nothing like the building you post, which IS just ugly! Dexia-tower is very cooL and has A nice architecture. You should see it in real! Indeed, a big step forwards for Brussels!
